When it comes to roofing projects, there are a whole variety of materials you could opt for. But, there’s one product in particular that stands out above the rest, and that’s Timber Purlins. To create secure yet breathable roofing for your agricultural building, timber perlins have a selection of properties which make choosing them the right decision.

What are Timber Purlins?

The name Purlin is given to either timber/wooden or metal beams, which help to make up the frame of a roof. This is what creates the skeleton frame of the structure if you will. What happens if you don’t use these? Well, simply put, you will have no frame for the roof sheeting to be fixed too. Whether you’re opting for box profile cladding or fibre cement roofing, you need a frame for the roof sheets to rest on, don’t you?

Timber purlins and roof sheets make for a great duo; they work well together to create a new roof. They create space which is safe for whatever it is you may be storing in your farm building; livestock or grain for example. Or even as a general purpose build.

When you combine timber perlins with fibre cement roofing, you’re rest assured that any moisture which accumulates within the farm build, will be drawn away by convection currents which run through the building. This ensures moisture will not settle on the grain if using as a Grain Store, or sit in the air and become harmful to the likes of livestock.
